The first steps toward the establishment of this School were
taken at the Friends' Half Year Meeting, held near Newmarket,
in the year 1837. Joseph John Gurney, a brother of Elizabeth
Fry and a well known minister among Friends in England, was
present, and largely through his encouragement and aid, it was
decided to establish a Friends' Boarding School near Picton,
Prince Edward Country.
The School was opened in 1842, and in 1848 was incorporated
under the name : "The Trustees of the Friends' or Quakers'
After a continuous corporate existence of thirty years, it was
removed to a more central location at Pickering, at which place
it became widely known for its thorough work and home-like
resident life. As its reputation grew, the buildings and premises
became quite inadequate to meet the needs of the constantly in-
creasing number of students, and when, on the eve of re-opening
for the Winter Term of 1906, the main building was totally
destroyed by fire, it was felt that in rebuilding provision should
be made, not only for present needs, but also for future growth
The advisibility of securing larger grounds, more convenient
of access, with the advantages of town water supply, electric
light and fire protection, led the management to decide upon
abandoning the site at Pickering, notwithstanding its old
associations, and to select a site in the outskirts of the town of
Through the liberality of the friends of the School in Canada
and the United States, and the very generous aid received from
Friends in England, it has been possible to erect in this place a
building, ample in size and thoroughly suited to the work of a
well equipped modern school.
Newmarket is a thriving town, thirty-three miles north of
Toronto, and easy of access both by the Grand Trunk Railway
and the Metropolitan Trolley Line.
The College has an ideal location, overlooking the town and
a wide extent of country in every direction. The grounds consist
of twenty-five acres, affording ample space for all ourdoor sports.
The main building has a frontage of 210 feet. The architec-
ture may be described as modernized Georgian or Colonial, the
materials used being red brick with white stone trimmings. The
entrance is marked by four large Corinthian columns, breaking
the long line of the facade.
In designing the building the architect has kept in view the
three principle factors in a successful school building, viz., sim-
plicity of control and internal arrangement., the lighting of class-
rooms and bedrooms; and the expression on the facade of the
purpose of the building.
An attractive entrance hall, reception room, office, assembly
rooms, with classrooms and music rooms occupy the greater part
of the ground floor; the second and third floors are devoted to
libraries, bedrooms and bathrooms.
The classrooms are believed to be models in point of dimen-
sions, light and ventilation.
The bedrooms are airy and pleasant, all receiving direct
sunlight during some part of the day. Each room is arranged to
accommodate two students, and is provided with a single iron
bed and a clothes-closet for each student.
The building- is heated throughout by steam and lighted by
electricity. It has an abundant supply of pure water, and numerous
bathrooms and lavatories, with excellent ventilation and drainage.
A special system of high pressure water mains has been laid
throughout the building to provide at all times effective fire
The College seeks to give to its students accurate knowledge
and definite training along those lines best adapted to their
individual needs. It emphasizes the distinctly academic side of
school work in preparing students for the examinations of the
Education Department of Ontario, and for matriculation into the
universities and scientific schools of the Province; it emphasizes
the practical side in preparing students for general business and
commercial careers ; and it emphasizes the aesthetic side in its
fully developed courses in music and art. While its success in
these phases of school work has been marked, in no phase has it
been more successful than in fulfilling its primary purpose — the
development, by a through training in the essentials of a liberal
education, and by the healthy influences of a well-ordered home
life, of cultured and Christian men and women.
In recognition of this primary purpose the founders of the
School adopted co-education. They believe — and long experi-
ence has abundantly proved the justness of their belief— that co-
education was the proper education, because the natural education.
Young people possess social as well as intellectual natures, and
these need development and refinement. What can be more
helpful than their association under careful and judicious super-
vision? In Pickering College, as elsewhere, experience has
shown, moreover, that such association, in giving additional
gracefulness and modest self-control to the girls' deportment,
and a manly courtesy and deference to the boys', is an excellent
stimulus to scholarship.
The work of the College embraces several departments :
Preparatory, Collegiate, Commercial, Music and Art.
I. Preparatory. — In the Preparatory Department the pupil
receives a grounding in elementary work, a grounding made
more thorough by the constant supervision of the teachers during
study hours, and under the skilful guidance of the Collegiate as
well as the Preparatory instructors during recitation. The
course of study embraces the work as laid down by the Minister
of Education for the Public Schools of Ontario.
IL Collegiate. — From the Preparatory the pupil passes into
the Collegiate Department, whose standard of admission is the
equivalent of the High School Entrance Examination. The cur-
riculum of the Collegiate Department covers the work for the
Pass and Honor Matriculation Examinations of Toronto Univer-
sity, also that prescribed by the Education Department of Ontario
for the Teachers' Examinations. Students not wishing to take
such examinations are recommended to pursue the course for the
College Diploma. This course embraces the work of the first
four years in English, History and Mathematics, and any three
of the following : Latin, Greek, French, German, Physics and
Chemistry. It is provided that students may substitute the
equivalent in Music, Painting or Drawing for a part of this work.
Should the student not wish to pursue the course for the College
Diploma, he may select a special course from the Collegiate and
Commercial Departments, provided that such a course, in charac-
ter and extent, meets the approval of the Principal.
III. Commercial. — The great industrial and commercial move-
ments of the age emphasize the need of a business education.
Side by side with the Collegiate Course, and at times including
some of its subjects, runs the Commercial Course. It offers
instruction in Single and Double Entry Book-keeping, Commer-
cial Arithmetic, Commercial Law, Business Forms, Penmanship,
Shorthand and Typewriting.
As technical skill alone will not suffice to make a good busi-
ness man, it is desirable that before entering this department the
student should possess a good English education.
A student may follow one of the two courses outlined here-
after. A certificate will be awarded on the completion cf either

COLLEGE HOCKEY TEAM
This department is under the directorship of Mr. James
Galloway, Associate of the Royal College of Organists (London,
England); a member of the Faculty of the Toronto Conservatory
of Music ; Organist and Choirmaster of the Church of St. Mary
In the course of his musical education Mr. Galloway was for
five years an articled pupil to Dr. H. A. Harding, F.R.C O.,
L.R.A.M. — one of England's finest musicians and teachers — with
whom he studied the Piano, Organ, Harmony and Counterpoint,
Choir-training and Voice Production.
Lectures will be delivered on various musical subjects, and
Recitals given from time to time for the benefit of students.
Students are prepared for the various examinations of the
Toronto Conservatory of Music, special attention being given to
detail, style and general musicianship.
GIRLS HOCKEY TEAM
The College Course is designed to extend over a period of
three years, and is particularly adapted to those who wish to pre-
pare for the musical profession and to amateurs who desire
thorough and systematic training.
Candidates for the examination of each year must be prepared
to play eight pieces selected from the syllabus. Not less than six
composers shall be represented by any pupil presenting himself as
a candidate for examination. The examiner will attach more
weight to the interpretation of compositions and to style of playing
than to the technical difficulty of the compositions chosen.
A preparatory Course intended to lead up to the Collegiate is
open to all students, whether they have previously acquired ac-
knowledge of music or not.
A diploma will be granted upon the satisfactory completion of
the Collegiate Course.
vocal In voice training special attention is given to the prevention or
course correction of vocal defects, to the all-important feature — the Art
of Breathing — to the production of a clear and perfect tone,
enunciation and declamation, and to the careful avoidance of the
least forcing of the voice.
Candidates for the examination of each year must be prepared
to sing six compositions selected from the syllabus.
A diploma will be granted upon the satisfactory completion of

The Literary Society is sustained by teachers and students,
and has proved to be one of the most useful features of the College.
The President is always an officer of the school ; all pupils are its
members. Its Laws and Rules of Order have been framed with
the greatest care, and with the intent that all belonging to the
society shall gain such experience in methods of transacting
business in public meetings as will be most useful to them in the
actual affairs of life. At each meeting debates are held, or essays
read, and readings and recitations given. These tend to train
the students in facility and exactness of expression in public
assemblies, and to develop a taste for useful and elevating litera-
ture by the study and thoughtful preparation required.
"The College Journal," the Society's manuscript paper, is
read by the editors before the Society at regular meetings.
The College Reading Room is managed by the Society, and
affords to members ample facilities for becoming acquainted
not only with current news, but also with some of the choice
periodical literature of the time.
The discipline of the College is kind, but it is firmly and
impartially administered. Good discipline is based upon reason
and upon a sense of justice and consideration for others, and the
good discipline of Pickering College is derived from appeals to
these qualities, from the unity of interests, and from the sym-
pathy and kindliness between teacher and pupil that should mark
All rules and regulations of the College are the products of
long experience, and with these rules the staff expects — and
exacts — an unquestioning compliance. Severe or even frequent
punishments of any kind will not be resorted to. When a stu-
dent's influence is felt to be harmful, he may be asked to leave at
any time without specific charges being made against him. Gross
misconduct or continued violation of the rules of the school will
be met by suspension, and after investigation by the Committee
of Management, this suspension may become expulsion.
As absence from the regular school duties, even for a single
day, interferes seriously with the work of the pupil, no one will
be allowed to go home during the term — special or urgent cases
excepted — or stay overnight with friends in the vicinity, except
by written request from the parent or guardian to the Principal.
It is earnestly desired that such requests be made as rarely as
Punctual attendance from the first to the closing day of each
term is of vital importance, not only to the student himself, but
to the members of the classes with which he is connected. Parents
are therefore strongly urged to see that their children return
punctually after the holidays.
During the hours for preparation students are expected to
study in the school-room under the supervision of teachers. The
habit thus formed of quiet, systematic study, and the assistance
given, in case of need, by the teacher in charge, have in the past
proved important factors in maintaining a high standard of
excellence in work throughout the School.
Reports of conduct and progress in study are sent to parents
and guardians monthly. These reports are made up partly from
daily records and partly from written tests. Reports of term
examinations are sent out at Christmas, Easter and Midsummer.
All students are required to attend the classes in Physical
Culture, for which no extra charge is made. The course will
consist of Calisthenic Exercises, Freehand Gymnastics, Exercises
with Dumb-bells, Clubs, etc.
For the preservation of health, and for the physical develop-
ment of the students, outdoor exercise is encouraged, and cordial
support is given to athletic sports ; but these sports are regarded
as a means to an end and are not allowed to take a first place in
the school life.
The College grounds comprise twenty-five acres, thus afford,
ing space for large separate playing fields for junior and senior
boys, as well as ample recreation grounds for the girls.
An Athletic Association has been established by the students,
and the games — cricket, basket-ball, football, baseball, hockey,
tennis, etc., are under its control.
Every afternoon, weather permitting, the girls, accompanied
by one of the lady teachers, walk out together for exercise. In
suitable weather, tennis, croquet, basketball or skating may take
the place of the afternoon walk.
The Annual Games are held in June, when, through the kind-
ness of the friends of the College, useful and valuable prizes are
offered for competition.
The College skating rink is a large building, 150 feet long
by 55 feet broad. It is lighted by electricity and provided with
dressing rooms and spectator's gallery. It not only provides for
the skating in winter, but serves as a covered playground during
the inclement weather in spring and fall.
Intimately connected with the question of the recreation of
the students is that of the health of the students. The location
of the school buildings is unusually favorable — high, dry, well
drained, removed from all other buildings, from swampy or
malarial districts, and from all predisposing causes of disease.
The buildings themselves are large, airy and well ventilated, with
an excellent hot and cold water supply, baths, lavatories, etc.
The plumbing is the best scientifically that can be procured, and
the system of drainage is as perfect as modern sanitation can
make it. The school life is regular. Special attention is given
to the time and quality of the meals, the hours of study and
Parents are assured that prompt and efficient attention will
be given to all cases of illness, and, when necessary, isolation
will be provided. In serious cases immediate notification will be
sent to the parents.
The Principal is a Minister of the Society of Friends, and all
religious meetings are under his supervision.
On the Sabbath those students who are not Friends, and
whose parents desire it, are allowed to attend their own places of
worship (if the services are held in the daytime) at such hours as
will not conflict with the College Bible School ; all others are
expected to attend the Friends' Meeting. In Newmarket there
are, besides the Friends', the following places of worship : Pres-
byterian, Methodist, Christian, Church of England and Roman
In addition to the week-day classes in Bible History, Bible
Classes are held on Sabbath afternoons, and a meeting for wor-
ship in the College in the evening.
Prayer Meetings are held once a week under the auspices of
the College Y.P. S.C.E. These meetings have, in the past, been
a source of great blessing to both teachers and studens.
Note. — All students are expected to attend the Bible School
and the Sabbath Evening Meeting, unless excused for good and
sufficient reasons by the Principal.
AppltntttOHB Applications for admission should be accompanied by satis-
factory evidence of good moral character, also by such informa-
tion as may prove useful in making arrangements for the welfare
of the pupil. A blank form of application will be found enclos-
ed with this announcement, which should be filled out, and for-
warded to the Principal.
No student will be received who has been dismissed from any
other school an account of bad conduct, or who is addicted to
the use of tobacco or alcoholic liquors.
Damage to property must be promptly reported and paid for.
The occupants of each room will be held responsible for all
damages in the room.
All necessary articles of furniture are provided by the School,
but students are encouraged to bring pictures, cushions, etc.,
with which to beautify their rooms.
Students are expected to provide their own towels, toilet
soap, napkins and napkin ring. They should also be provided
with laundry bag, rubbers or overshoes and umbrellas.
All articles of clothing should be plainly marked in indelible
ink with the name of the owner. Neglect of this precaution causes
losses for which the School will not be responsible.
Books, newspapers, etc., brought into the College by the
pupils, or received by them, are subject to the approval of the
Drinking wine, beer, or spirituous liquours, the use of tobacco
in any manner and in any place, profane or indecent language,
card playing and the use of firearms are strictly forbidden. No
student who persists in any of these practices will be allowed to
remain in the College.
No student will be allowed to go swimming, bathing, boating
or fishing without permission and supervision.
